The American Government’s Biggest Lie Now Is About Ukraine

March 26th, 2015

Eric Zuesse

The American Government’s biggest lie in 2002-2003 was about Saddam Hussein and Iraq. We’ve already seen what that lie produced. It cost the U.S. more than $3 trillion, produced ISIS, and caused death and destruction in Iraq that make Saddam Hussein’s dictatorship look benign by comparison. Are Americans still fooling themselves about that? (Some are; but most are not.)

The American Government’s biggest lie in 2014-2015 is instead about Vladimir Putin and Ukraine — and it’s even worse, and far more dangerous, because this one can very possibly lead to a nuclear war, one with Russia that’s totally unnecessary for America’s national-security, and that actually places all of our nation’s security at risk, for the shameful reasons of aristocrats (“oligarchs”) in both the U.S. and Ukraine — not for any real reasons of the American people, at all.

Netanyahu in, “Peace Process” Realistic?

March 26th, 2015

By Khalid Amayreh

A Republican administration, Netanyahu calculates, probably correctly as well, wouldn't only curry favor with him but grovel at his feet.(Reuters)
The landslide victory scored by Binyamin Netanyahu's Likud Party and its jingoistic allies this week underscores a long-known fact pertaining to the Israeli-Jewish society, namely that this society is consistently drifting toward fascism.

Hard-core Jewish extremists, along with the Likud, won enough seats in the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, to form a stable and strong government.

The Israeli left (Meretz), won no more than five seats out of 120, while the Joint Arab List, which represents the Arab community in Israel, won 13 seats. The Zionist Union, erroneously described by the media as a center-left Party, won 24 seats, leaving a fascist and quasi-fascist bloc led by Netanyahu in control of as many as 78 seats.

Britain Imprisons Migrants

March 26th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Britain is like America - a fascist police state masquerading as a democracy. Tories and New Labour are two sides of the same coin. Lib Dems are no different.

They're allied with Washington's war machine. They serve powerful entrenched interests at the expense of all others.

They treat their most disadvantaged citizens disdainfully. Migrants seeking safe haven asylum are treated like criminals.

British media largely ignore what's ongoing. A March 3 London Independent report was a rare exception proving the rule.

Defrocked US General Blames Iran for US Crimes in Iraq

March 25th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman


Petraeus

Blaming others for its own crimes is longstanding US policy. Lunatic active duty, retired and defrocked Pentagon generals lie like their government counterparts.

David Petraeus is one of the worst. On March 20, the neocon Washington Post headlined "Petraeus: The Islamic State isn't our biggest problem in Iraq."

He attended an annual University of Iraq Sulaimani Forum gathering of "Iraqi leaders, thinkers and academics…"

He commented on Obama's Iraq War III. He answered WaPo correspondent Liz Sly's questions on its prospects. More on this below.

He commanded US forces in Iraq during George Bush's so-called 2007-08 surge.

He was CENTCOM commander and head of US forces in Afghanistan. He served as CIA director. He fell from grace for incompetence. He failed in Iraq, Afghanistan and as CIA head.

Lurching Toward Armageddon

March 25th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Neocon lunatic fringe elements infest Washington. They control US policy - notably on issues of war and peace.

They're using NATO and US installed Ukrainian Nazis to stoke direct confrontation with Russia.

Daily geopolitical events should scare everyone. Gunslinger NATO commander General Philip Breedlove rails about nonexistent "Russian aggression." He wants Minsk sabotaged. He wants war, not peace. He wants full US-led Western support given Ukraine to wage it.

Obama Risks WW III

March 25th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

WW I was supposed to be the war to end all wars. WW II for sure - fought to eliminate the scourge of fascism.

Its headquarters moved from Berlin to Washington. Never again became permanent wars of conquest - from Truman to Obama and whoever succeeds him.

One independent nation after another is targeted. Obama wages so many direct and proxy wars, it's hard keeping track.

America spends trillions of dollars for mass slaughter, destruction and human immiseration.

It threatens humanity's survival. Its combat forces operate in scores of countries worldwide.

Washington Declares Political and Economic War on Russia

March 25th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Washington wants one of its main rivals marginalized, weakened, contained and isolated.

It wants its sovereign independence destroyed. It wants it made another vassal client state.

It wants control of its vast resources. It wants them plundered for profit. It wants ordinary Russians exploited as virtual serfs.

It risks nuclear war to achieve its imperial objectives. The threat of its outbreak was never greater.

Spy Master a Lethal Melanoma

March 24th, 2015

SARTRE

The formation of a bureaucratic superstructure for national intelligence will put in motion a perverse organism. The significance lies not in the figurehead or even the process for the selection, but rests in the birthing of a Medusa. Little wisdom comes out of this modern daughter of Phorkys and Keto, the children of Gaia (Earth) and Okeanos (Ocean). This ugly creature will use the charms of seduction – national security – but will end up spreading a den of snakes. The globe will be her playpen and the seas will be her lake. No one or no place will fall outside her watch. She will run her hydra network through all those underling heads, but in the end her advice will revival that of Eve. The mother of all evil won’t be a gender bias for any director will impose paternity over the stream of information. The children of this fraudulent union will bear the price from her wrath. Overseas enemies will feel the force of her boot. And the only creature to resist her might may well be those who run under the radar screen.

Kiev Rejects Minsk Mandated Donbass Self-Rule

March 24th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Minsk II terms Kiev agreed to mandated parliamentary legislation affording Donbass "special regime" self-rule within 30 days of the document's February 12 signing.

Kiev missed the deadline. On March 17, it reneged. It passed draft legislation only.

It declared Donetsk and Lugansk "temporarily occupied territories."

It refused special autonomous status. It postponed entering the law into force until elections are held.

The Donetsk News Agency quoted Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) parliament speaker Denis Pushilin saying:

"Uncoordinated amendments to the law made by Poroshenko are not recognized by the (DPR and LPR) republics."

U.S. opens up to Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood, Syria, and Iran

March 24th, 2015

By Nicola Nasser*

The appointment of Robert Malley as White House Coordinator for the Middle East, North Africa and the Gulf Region is not considered a sufficient indicator that there will be any radical change in U.S. strategy despite the campaign launched against the U.S. by the Zionists due to its openness to Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, Syria and Iran.

On 6 March, President Barack Obama's administration appointed Robert Malley, the former senior director of the National Security Council who dealt with the Iraqi, Iranian, and Gulf issues, and a member of the delegation negotiating the Iranian nuclear programme, as the Special White House Coordinator for the Middle East, North Africa and Gulf region. Malley is scheduled to assume his new position on 6 April, succeeding Philip Gordon.
